MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An investigation is underway following a massive fire in Madison County.

Late Monday night, crews from multiple agencies responded to the scene of what appeared to be a warehouse in Kearney Park, north of Flora. The facility contained cotton seeds and cotton lint used to make an absorbant called "gator dry", which is very flammable. It's often used to clean up oil spills on the roadways.

The building is a total loss, but no one was hurt.
